thanks for joining us, i'm dave courvoisier. ((paula francis)) and i'm paula francis. this is a wonderful time to head out to red rock.. but be careful: the sun still sets early, and winding trails make it easy to get lost. murphy shows us... hiking safety is in focus in the national conservation area: ((vanessa murphy/reporte r: metro police tell us last year, out of about 160 rescues, the majority of them were here at red rock, so we looked into how this could be avoided and why so many people get lost.)) ((christina warburg/hiker: definitely gorgeous. )) ((vanessa murphy)) california resident christina warburg is visiting red rock... ((christina: it's so beautiful.)) ((vanessa murphy)) ...for the first time. ((vanessa: how easy do you think it is to get lost? christina: extremely easy if you don't know what you're doing.)) ((vanessa murphy)) when i went on the turtlehead peak trail for the first time with a co- worker this week we reached the top, but... ((vanessa: from iphone: we are trying to get up there )) ((vanessa murphy)) we almost.... ((nat of walking )) ((vanessa murphy)) got lost on the way. ((vanessa: this is only the second trail marker we've seen
11:01 pm
come....we actually started walking in the wrong direction.)) ((christine cauble/climber: i think in the wash it becomes convoluted because of all the rocks.)) ((vanessa murphy)) las vegas resident christine cauble is an experienced climber. ((christine: i think if you're not aware of your surroundings and landmarks, you can easily get lost or stuck up in higher areas and not know how to get back down. )) ((vanessa: do you think there could be more trail markers here to help? christina: i think so, yeah, i didn't really see all of that many up there.)) ((bryan zink/rrsar: some of the trails that go in the back country cold definitely be marked a little bit better.)) ((vanessa murphy)) bryan zink volunteers for red rock search and rescue which helps find people who are missing or lost. ((bryan: it's a very beautiful place and we always encourage people to go out there and explore the beautiful lands that we have but the key thing is to go out there and be prepared.)) ((vanessa: some tips: dress appropriately, check the weather, tell someone where you're going and bring enough you can leave here safely. vanessa murphy, 8 news now. )) ((paula francis)) a boost for rescuers today...

congressman joe heck passed the house as an amendment to a sportsmen's bill. the good samaritan search and recovery act allows rescue teams to go onto federal property -- within 48 hours of requesting a permit -- without requiring insurance. they must waive any expectation of government liability. the legislation now heads to the senate./// ((dave courvoisier)) > burglars made off with a bounty of valuables from a summerlin home... while the homeowners were sleeping inside the house. mauricio marin joining us in studio with a good look at the crooks... plus more on a disturbing trend. ((mauricio marin)) dave, the home had high- quality cameras around the exterior and inside... which should help bring these suspects to justice... thanks to some good looks at their faces. this is the security footage from the summerlin home near north town center drive and canyon run drive. police say on february 18-th... that was a thursday... these two young men made entrance to the home between midnight and 2 a-m... while the residents were sleeping in other rooms.
11:03 pm
thanks to the video, we know that the first suspect is a man in his early twenties... about five- foot-10 and 150 pounds... the other suspect is a man also in his early twenties... about five- foot-10 and 160 pounds. we've done some digging and found tonight that since the beginning of the month... there have been 21 reported burglaries within a two mile radius of the home... in just 26 days. that certainly has to make residents in the area nervous... and aware that they need to keep their doors locked and secured. ((mauricio marin)) if you recognize the men you can remain anonymous when you call crime stoppers... and dave, there's a good chance that they can be brought in quickly thanks to this video. ((dave courvoisier)) mauricio, have we heard from the homeowners? ((mauricio marin)) we reached out earlier to see if they would do an interview... but were told they were nervous about going on camera for this story./// ((paula francis)) > taking a live look outside right now... a gorgeous evening has turned into another comfortable night... and we're shaping up for a beautiful weekend! lots of positive words tonight...

11:06 pm
dies in this situation." )) ((paula francis)) the driver was not cited or arrested at the scene... but could face charges up to reckless driving depending on what police determine through their investigation./// ((paula francis)) > this was a deadly week for pedestrians who weren't doing anything wrong. today a 57- year-old woman died after she was hit by a pickup truck wednesday morning. flora largusa and her husband were in a marked crosswalk when a driver hit them on del rey avenue near rainbow. the driver in that crash remained on the scene and did not seem to be impaired. that investigation is ongoing./// music ((dave courvoisier)) > democratic presidential hopeful hillary clinton is the heavy favorite to defeat senator bernie sanders in tomorrow's south carolina primary. clinton has a big advantage in polling over sanders... but the former secretary of state may find herself again explaining her use of a private computer server to transmit

11:09 pm
11:10 pm
((paula francis)) > prescription drugs. studies show they've gone up in price by6% in just 4 years....
11:11 pm
americans to go without. ((dave courvoisier)) but 8 on your side consumer advocate michelle mortensen may have found a solution to the price predicament. michelle, what's the secret? ((michelle mortensen)) the secret is nothing new. it's just been overlooked ... because .. it takes time ... and energy. but i'll show you .. the savings are worth it. < prescriptions. everyone's talking about them. ((hillary clinton: we have to go after skyrocketing drug costs. )) (( it's a big deal a big problem )) ((sanders )) (( the cost of medicine )) ((trump...newspr escript news nrws new s)) and some say this guy... martin why? the so-called poster child of prescription price gouging raised the price of this drug .. from 13 bucks a pill to 750... in one day. but shkreli wasn't the first to do this. here's proof. avonex ... an m-s drug ... was just 16 thousand a year back in 2005. in 2015 ... it jumped to 70 thousand. then cancer drug gleevec...
11:12 pm
2001... to 90 grand just 11 years later. in fact all of these drugs ... spiked an average 76 percent in the last several years. so what's the secret to savings? shopping around. see pharmacies are free market businesses ... they can charge what they want... and they do... i talked to 10 pharmacies about 7 drugs and prices really vary.. synthroid ... a thyroid medication ... costs 62 bucks at walmart ... at target... just 25. lyrica is 222 at cvs and 189 for costco members . lipitor costs on average about 250 bucks valleywide.... but go generic ... and it's close to 100 bucks at cvs ... 30-40 bucks at target and walmart ... and only 5.25 at healthwarehou and healthwarehou ... is locally owned.... started by this guy.
11:13 pm
largest online pharmacy in the u.s., that's licensed in all 50 states. )) las vegan lalit dhadphale says his site is all about no hassel service... and cheap prices. (( :10 l: we are very transparent in the pricing and basically you just have your doctor send the prescription like you would do to any pharmacy and you make a payment online)) but online shopping isn't everyone's cup of tea ... so one last savings tip ... don't just shop around by chain ... but by zip code. we called several cvs and wallgreen's pharmacies ... and they all charge different prices. a c-v-s in north las vegas charges 2 dollars more for synthroid than other cvs stores. and a walgreens on the strip charges 4 bucks more for crestor .. 19 bucks more for celebrex and 25 bucks more for nexium. just more proof the complex ... but saving doesn't have to be...
11:14 pm
((michelle mortensen)) we did our research on non-insurance prices ... but even with insurance ... the same rules apply. and i promised i'd show you the savings are worth it. to do that ... i'll use tammy coffin ... a member of our debt destroyer family ... to illustrate. we've been following her as we help her get out of debt in one year. you may recall she has m-s .. but can't take all her meds because they are too expensive. she says all of them .. with insurance ... were over a thousand bucks a month. to lower the costs ... she spoke with her doctors and they changed some medications to cheaper alternatives. she also got coupons from some of the manufacturers making the a few of her prescriptions free. that dropped her cost to 734 a month. shopping around dropped the total to 680. if she gets approved for one more coupon .... her total will be 480. so a savings of 547 dollars. the trick with the coupons if you have insurance...
11:15 pm
or go to a pharmacy ... and say ... you want to pay cash ... no insurance. it's that easy. and all of this information .. plus coupons for many prescriptions can be found on our website .. las vegas now dot com .. in the 8 on your side section./// ((paula francis)) > if you're looking for something fun to do this weekend... and you love good food... the las vegas taste and sounds of soul festival continues tomorrow. the festival features some fantastic soul food to whet your tastebuds... along with nonstop entertainment entertainment on the fremont street experience main stage. the festival is open from 11 a-m
